Unusual factory features

The head stock logo is different from any other 2003 Gretsch junior jet 2, it has the Gretsch logo with the R. Registered trademark symbol next to it and directly under that diagonally is the Electromatic logo in small script and Gretsch logo on truss rod cover , also a square black plastic jack plate , it has the MINI HUMBUCKERS

Found it in a pawn shop with dust on it , I cleaned it up and it was in Mint condition under all that dust I got it for $170 with hard shell SKB CASE

FYI the mini-humbuckers are still designated as “Gretschbuckers”, even though they are different from the full-size Gretschbuckers. For database purposes they are all lumped together— so you can modify your listing to update the pickup type.

The headstock graphics indicate a transitional model, which is generally only found in the 2003-2004 year models for this particular guitar. The 2002 models had “Electromatic” in large script and Gretsch on the truss rod cover, and the late 2004-onward models had “Gretsch” at the top with “Electromatic” in the vertical font.
